A judge on Thursday sentenced a Florida man to death for fatally shooting an Orlando police officer while he was on the run for killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Jurors in November found Markeith Loyd, 46, guilty in the January 2017 death of Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton, and unanimously recommended a death sentence during a hearing in December. Circuit Judge Leticia Marques announced her decision during a brief hearing on Thursday morning.
Loyd is already serving a life sentence for killing Sade Dixon, his former girlfriend, a month before Clayton was killed.
The guy is truly scum.
An autopsy showed that Clayton was struck four times and the fatal shot hit her neck, apparently as she lay on her back on the ground.
Simply put: He executed Lt Clayton. It does not matter if she was a cop or a civilian, that was just pure evil.
I do expect BLM and the appropriate suspects to come out defending this vicious predator soon enough with Anitfa celebrating with the hastag #ACAB.
